If you live in the southern parts of the country, it may not make sense to pay to heat your pool for a few months in the winter and cool it for a few months in the summer. Now, you can do both without adding to your electric bill by investing in a solar pool heater.
What Is a Solar Pool Heater?
Solar pool heaters work with your pool’s existing pump. When the water temperature is cooler than you like, the pump will send water up to special solar collectors on your roof. There, the water gets heated by the sun, then returned to your pool. A solar pool heater can raise your pool’s temperature by 10 to 15 degrees without using any electricity.
But wait – there’s more! During the heat of the summer, a solar pool heater can work in reverse. At night, it takes your warm pool water up to the solar collectors to cool down so your pool is a more reasonable temperature in the morning.
Solar Pool Heater Benefits
Solar pool heaters have a wide variety of benefits, including:
- Environmentally friendly. Since the sun is heating your pool water rather than electricity, you can enjoy a warm swim on a cool day without using any fossil fuels.
- Cost-efficient. Solar pool heaters require very little maintenance, if any. Once you install a solar pool heater, you now get warmed and cooled water for no additional cost over the life of the heater.
- Longer swimming season. Compared to not having a pool heater, a solar pool heater can help you swim on hotter and colder days than before, extending your swimming season by weeks or months each year.
For Even More Energy Savings…
While you’re adding a solar pool heater, why not upgrade to a variable speed pool pump, too?
Variable speed pool pumps offer energy savings of up to 90% compared to single-speed pumps. Depending on how large your pool is, how high your electric rate is, and if you keep your pool open all year, you could save hundreds, if not thousands of dollars each year by switching to a variable speed pump.
